Query: NC_000961:1727638 Pyrococcus horikoshii OT3, complete genome Lineage: Pyrococcus horikoshii; Pyrococcus; Thermococcaceae; Thermococcales; Euryarchaeota; Archaea General Information: This organism was isolated from a hydrothermal vent at Okinawa Trough in the Pacific Ocean at a depth of 1395 m. This organism is an obligate anaerobic, hyperthermophilic archaeon. Growth occurs at 80-102 degrees C with optimal growth at 98 degrees C and a pH of 7.0. Presence of elemental sulfur has been found to greatly stimulate growth.

General Information: This strain was isolated from a shallow marine solfataric (volcanic area that gives off sulfuric gases) region at Vulcano Island, Italy. This organism is a strictly anaerobic, hyperthermophilic archaeon. Growth occurs at temperatures between 67 and 103 degrees C, with optimal growth at 100 degrees C and a pH of 7.0. This organism is highly motile due to a bundle of flagella.
